Magnesium is a potential material for load-bearing biodegradable implant applications due to its biodegradability and biocompatibility. However, the high degradation rate and the localized degradation susceptibility of magnesium in body fluid are major concerns. Alloying has been proven to reduce the degradation rate of magnesium, but the localized degradation is still an issue. This chapter focuses on the potential use of hydroxyapatite (HAp) as a coating material on magnesium and its alloys to tailor their degradation behavior. Various methods of HAp coating on magnesium and its alloys and the associated challenges and potential solutions are discussed.
